Minor League Game of the Week
A new minor league game of the week is now on FutureAngels.com. This is the second of four games in memory of Nick Adenhart.
May 9, 2006 … The Cedar Rapids Kernels visit the Dayton Dragons (Reds affiliate). Nick pitches seven shutout innings, striking out nine and walking one while giving up four hits.
Some other interesting notes about this game.
Two players in the lineup were converted later in their careers into pitchers and made it to the big leagues with other organizations. DH Warner Madrigal, who homers in the game, is now a reliever with the Rangers. Travis Schlichting, who plays third base, pitched briefly for the Dodgers this year in relief.
In addition to Madrigal, Mark Trumbo and Jordan Renz also homer in the game.
